Pick-your-own farms are just plain fun for people of all ages, but children especially love them. Get into the spirit by raking your own blueberries (rakes provided!), or picking apples, strawberries, and other fruits, plus vegetables and even flowers. You’ll be sure to go home with baskets full of delicious produce, plus other wares the farms are sure to offer—jams, pies, fresh eggs, maple syrup tapped straight from the tree!
